How the P&C helps the kids at WESS

5/02/2018

The Parents & Citizens Association is an important part of WESS!

Did you know the P&C runs five services with ~25 staff:

  • 5-star Tuckshop – refurbished by the P&C in 2013/14
  • OSHC (outside school hours care) - Every day we now have 130 kids in after school care and we are looking at expanding!
  • Uniform shop doing a great job getting everyone in the correct uniform!
  • Water Rats Swim club with after school lessons and a fantastic club on Thursday nights with the best haloumi burgers!
  • Tennis Court hire to the community

While also:

  • applying for Grants to improve school facilities
  • providing input into the building program
  • fostering relationships between everyone involved in the school.

And fundraising:

  • with the best FIESTA ever, a highlight of the school year! - last year we raised $46,000
  • fathers, mothers and carers Day stalls, Movie nights, Art Show catering

Recent contributions the P&C has made to the school include:

  • prep/Year 1 playground has been made awesome (shades to come)
  • big Ass fans in the hall that will keep everyone cooler
  • annually up to $20,000 of new home readers
  • and lots of other things.

The P&C relies on Volunteers!

So much can be achieved through the P&C and School working together. To do this we need people from all walks of life who are committed to delivering great outcomes for your children and our school. Everybody has a role to play and your ideas will be heard. The more people involved in our P&C the more exciting and successful it will be!

Maybe you can help a few hours a year of maybe a couple of hours a month? There are opportunities for everyone to contribute. Parents, friends, Year 5 & 6 students are all welcome. Some options are:

  • updating the website
  • rebranding the P&C (our letterhead and this brochure need you!)
  • preparing lunches in the tuckshop
  • selling uniforms in the uniform shop
  • writing grant applications
  • help with fundraising activities
  • cooking the BBQ at swim club or timing the races
  • set up and pull down of events
  • wrapping gifts twice a year
  • school banking reconciliation
  • and if you’re really keen you could become a committee member!

If you have any questions or would like to join the P&C please contact: Donna our Office Manager on (07) 3010 8281 pandc.wess@bigpond.com or pop into the office which is located in the school hall, beside the OHSC.
